The plan for 4th of July was nothing. Then the hubs and I was talking about going camping and so happen the projects at work is stalled so fil could cover calls so the hubs quickly tried to find some campsites so we could go for the weekend. He found a couple but it was a long drive and only Wednesday and Thursday available not weekend. Found one or two with the whole weekend but we held off on making a reservation (don’t know why)
Anyway Saturday evening Mr.4 started having a temperature and we had to give him medication because he said his head hurts so I thought he was dehydrated from being outside in the morning. He was fine on Sunday. I was very cautious in case Mr.7 got sick too so I didn’t push the camping matter.
On Tuesday morning Mr.7 slept in till 8:30ish which NEVER happens!! So I checked on him and he told me that his throat hurts. He had a fever too I didn’t check the temperature because I wanted his body to fight it.
Quickly used my #instantpot and made pork porridge for him loaded with carrots, cilantro and green onions from my garden for Mr.7. He ate a little and threw up a little for lunch. He was laying down all day. Finally he complained his joint hurts and he don’t feel good so I had no choice but to go give him a dose of Tylenol. He then took a nap and felt better because he was playing with Mr.4 after that.
We continued to monitor him and made him load up on liquid. Gave him another dose of medicine so he could rest at night. Hubs slept with him that night and said that he seems fine.
Towards the end of the night my throat started hurting a little and I was afraid it would be my turn. I guzzled loads of liquid and load up on viramin C.
Wednesday morning my whole body hurts and the hubs checked my temperature my fever was 102.3 FML I’ve never had such high fever till my body hurts (that I can remember) I stayed in bed most of the day.
Hubs told the kids you better take care of mommy if her fever goes higher that 104-105 she can die. Mr.7 said I cannot believe mummy is going to die 😂😂😂 it was funny the way he said it.
I tried to fight off the virus without meds too but my body was in so much pain I couldn’t even get out of bed so I summon the hubs to get me 3 Tylenol. Shortly after I took it I felt slightly better I could walk and not feel miserable. I took naps better too.
We had a turkey thaw and was going to cook it that day so I was able to get the seasoning ready season the turkey and hubs did the cooking while I rest. So dinner was turkey with no sides! I got a can of canberries and he cut up a tomatoe and they had a sandwich. I ate some turkey and called it good. Luckily I cooked ginko barley the day before and I was eating those all day.
Hubs also cut the watermelon and made sure everyone ate them too. Yes cause I always tell them to load up on liquid and eat lots of water melon.
Towards the night I was feeling crappy again. Mr.7 took my temperature and I was 103.3 I was freezing I had two blankets but I was obviously hot. Mr.7 made me remove the blankets (pay back is a bitch lol) cause he said I could get over heat 😥😥😥 I quickly eat another 3 Tylenol and rest while they watched fireworks on the deck. Mr.4 has been my “Doctor” for the day. Making sure that he would be there when I’m walking around “in case” I fall. Mr.7 was standing in front of the steps when I went to the toilet so I don’t fall and I told him he shouldn’t do that cause if I fall better I fall then we both fall. He was so worried he slept upstairs with me so he can “help” me in case daddy can’t hear me.
Another funny shit my husband said was (back track I had my eyebrows done like microblading but I had powder brows done is mix of microblading and machine last Thursday so I have to be very careful with it can’t go under the sun can’t wet it etc) oh your temperature is so high is not good for your eye brows too. I replied you know I think so too wtf #shitthehusbandsays
Thankfully I was sweating last night I think my fever finally broke but I got up with a slight headache. The husband wanted to make sure I was ok before he went to work. He did stay at the office today in case I am not. I did take the kids grocery shopping and to the library.
Not fully ok but didn’t feel miserable like the first day. I told the hubs he better be careful cause it feels like the older you are this virus is worst. Hopefully he don’t get it. Told him to load up on watermelon and vitamin c. I should go back to guzzling down my water kefir too!
That was how I spend my 4th of July doing nothing just resting 😥😥. I’m so glad that it happened during a public holiday so the hubs can help with the kids.
